Excellent food and amazing cocktails

Pink Elephant in Unawatuna Beach is a very cozy place with great atmosphere. The staff is friendly, the food is tasty and fresh and the cocktails are superb. Their Passion Mojito is top notch.

Great portions, decent food, wraps are a bargain. Beer could be colder, and servers a little more attentive, probably would have had a couple more drinks if they were quicker and aware our glasses were empty for 10 minutes. Worth a stop on your way from the beach.

And the food was sooo good and well priced. Massive portions! He even have us a free cocktail if we posted a good review - here... More

As we had eaten nothing but fish we decided to have a 'meat' night so that may be why we were slightly disappointed in our meal. We had filet steak and the ribs, there was nothing wrong with it but just not quite as good as other meals - but we didn't try meat dishes anywhere else. With a couple... More

Last night we had a great meal in this restaurant, the servivce, food and presentation was excellent. You have to get there early say about 7pm as there are only a few tables and it fills out quickly. We tried Marco's and Koko's, but would rate the Pink elephant as number one in Unawatuna. Would particularly recommend the chicken in... More

I stayed in their hostel as well as ate in their restaurant. Hostel - great stay, rooms were all single beds and I had a locker to secure my belongings. Bathrooms need a little TLC but for the price i can't fault it as accommodation can be pretty pricey in this area. It's in a super noisy location, but if... More

We went there with our friends for dinner and we really enjoyed it. They already new the place which also proves that it's good if they wanted to come back :) For starter we just had chips(kind of) with mango chutney and they were good and not too spicy. Then we all had curry. I had shrimp curry and everyone... More

Had the prawn dumplings and guacamole for starters, they took quite a while to come and were very small portions. Then had the grilled prawns and chicken curry for main - both were tasty but you had to peel the prawns and they were covered in sauce. Its a pretty chilled hostel vibe but not sure if it quite warranted... More

Wonderful menu, tasty meals of high quality, nice atmosphere...just make sure you make your booking, otherwise no chance to have dinner there. A bit longer waiting to get serverd (as it is so busy there).
